troll (Internet slang)

I. Noun (plural, trolls)

1. A person who posts to annoy, irritate or generally be off topic.

2. Traditionally used as in deploying benign harassment for the purposes of indoctrinating a noob into a message board by establishing the group norms through contrast.

3. In the modern sense, it has come to be synonymous with "a*shole."

II. Verb ('Net slang "to troll")
to offer up bogus statements meant to provoke a fight online

DISAMBIGUATION
NOT to be confused with TRAWL (fishing term, verb) to drag for, either in fishing or online...
Jackie was such a troll back on that usenet; that noob didn't even recognize she was being ironic. Maybe next time Sam will see it and laugh.

Sam is learning, but he acts as such a troll and stirs up so much controversy on the abortion boards it is a real turnoff to me.

Sam's page got trolled (verb, past tense) by those kids, and it made me crack up because he's so uptight, and they made him look slow and loser-ish by comparison.

Before the Internet, there were the mythical Trolls of old who ate farmer’s goats.

After that, there were and are the semi-human versions of trolls that still exist today in all regions throughout the world.

Trolls can be divided into groups depending on where they live, such as Beach Trolls, Hill Trolls, City Trolls, Suburban Trolls, Valley Trolls and a couple other categories which take on unique characteristics depending on their surroundings.

All trolls are socially predatory creatures and when young are usually obsessed with their exterior appearances, while neglecting development of their blackening souls.

Their interior ugliness comes out as they age, and they, usually, let their outer appearances go to hell, so that they are easily recognizable. But, the young and middle-aged trolls will sometimes fool you with their charm.

All trolls are shysters and tight-fisted money grubbers who will screw you on any deal while making it out like you are the one coming out ahead. They will usually always greet you with a smile and a handshake. Sometimes, they will call you “brother” or “lady” to throw you off track.

All trolls are shit stirrers, lechers & trouble-makers. They would be the first to try and get your “significant other” in the sack, screw you out of some money or slander you.

POST #1 (Patriot)
"Socialism is a fatally flawed ideology that has utterly failed the people it purported to help."

POST #2 (Troll)
"Well of course it did to a racist, sexist, bigot, homophobe like you. You and the other Chimpy McBushhitlerites probably want to grind up the lazy ass poor people and turn them into dog food! My food doesn't have parents. Meat is murder!

Likewise some workaholics are obscenely rich and it's not fair. The money that they have personally stolen from the Native Americans since 1492 should be taken away and given to the lazy ass poor people (so that they can become lazy ass middle class people). And what about WMDs and global warming? What about those, huh?

MEAN PEOPLE SUCK so I hope you eat a lot of fast food and die of a heart attack! Fascist bastards!"

POST #3 (Moderator)

People who post empty and meaningless messages, purely to provoke.
Such people are mentally ill and have severe personality issues and insecurity as well as the average mind/priorities of a twelve year old.

Some people just can't grow out of the period in their life when scribbling on the walls and dropping spiders on the girls they liked was acceptable. At 20-30yrs of age, it's just pathetic.

Trolls don't care about proving a point or championing a cause. They just want to annoy, for the sake of annoyance and personal enjoyment, like a baby is entertained by a rattle or colorful lights.
They may tack on a "point" to draw out specific types of people but, it really doesn't matter. They're all the same. They all say the same shit. They all have the same excuses. They all fall back on the same responses and, they all share the same obliviousness to how stupid and pointless their lives are.

The troll is easily amused by things only the most retarded, unfunny child would appreciate.

They celebrate getting a reaction, that's it. Generally, they are so desperate for human interaction and, they are usually so vile, that negative attention is the best they can get. The saddest thing is, anyone can get a reaction by acting like an idiot. Anyone. They honestly take pride in the "art" like they've actually accomplished something.

It's astonishing to watch them brag about something 90% of the world would be embarrassed to even consider.

Don't let the occasional "smart" troll fool you. There is no "art" to it. It's a self loathing tool with anonymity to shield him, doing stupid things and when someone tells them they're making an ass of themselves, they dance around like some great mastermind who manipulated the psyches of those around them through careful planning and psychology, when in reality, they're a retard who shit in the public fountain and laughed when everyone looked.

Trolls have existed since ancient times, when they were referred to as the "village idiot" or "town drunk" a quixotic hero in their own mind, that the rest of the world pities in disgust.

Said disgust, isn't a victory, trolls. You've lost. Pray you never realize it. Ignorance truly is bliss and, you're the happiest motherfuckers around. Go see a shrink and tell them that you find enjoyment in pissing people off and try to look surprised when they tell you, you've got serious mental problems.
Troll this. *finger*
